Another long exposure with my 9 stop ND400 filter. The colours in the scene were a bit dull, which made me decide to go for the black & white. It's probably a bad choice entering such a shot in a free study, but I'm still holding thumbs.

Yeah! I'm very happy with a top 10 finish with a black and white entry. Thank you all for the comments and generous votes.

Looks almost unreal. Use of the long exposure has created something we cannot see with our eyes.
